The high society UK magazine Tatler published a cover story for its July/August issue called “Catherine the Great.”
Certain sections have since been deleted, including one saying that Kate was “furious about the larger workload” once the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially stepped back as working members of the royal family in March.
“Of course she’s smiling and dressing appropriately but she doesn’t want this. She feels exhausted and trapped,” a source told Tatler in a now-removed passage from the original article. “She’s working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays.”
Other parts about Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton speaking “like the queen” and Caroline Middleton being a “terrible snob” have been removed, along with comments about Kate being “perilously thin.”
Curiously enough, quotes from a source saying that Harry and Meghan affected William and Kate’s parenting of their three children remain in the article.
“Meghan and Harry have been so selfish,” yet another anonymous friend says. “William and Catherine really wanted to be hands-on parents and the Sussexes have effectively thrown their three children under a bus. There goes their morning school runs as the responsibilities on them now are enormous.”
